Summary:
Pantograph and Contact Line System comprehensively introduces pantographs, contact lines and their interactions in many areas including geometrics, dynamics, materials, and electrics—helpful to understanding the basic theories of interaction between pantographs and contact lines. The book examines application techniques for system design, construction and maintenance, and includes suggestions to keep pantograph and contact lines working in a safe and stable manner over the long term. In railway traction power supply system, the match between pantograph and contact lines is critical for reliable power transfer. The book provides application techniques for system management and parameter selection in design, construction and maintenance. This book is useful for people who are in catenary and pantograph-related areas such as college teachers and students, researchers and other professional and technical personnel in design, manufacture, construction, operation and maintenance. Includes comprehensive coverage of all types of electric-powered trains Presents pantographs and contact lines as a whole system Explores electrical acting between pantograph and contact line systems for the first time Summarizes techniques in geometrics, dynamics, materials and electrics Establishes theories specific to pantograph and contact line systems Applies theories of pantograph, contact lines and other interactions into system management and parameter selection in design, construction and maintenance Provides the techniques applied in measurement and maintenance

Electric traction is the most favourable type of power supply for electric railways from both an ecological and an economic perspective. In the case of urban mass transit and high-speed trains it is the only possible type of traction. Its reliability largely depends on contact lines, which must operate in all climatic conditions with as high availability and as little maintenance as possible. Extreme demands arise when overhead contact lines are required to provide reliable and safe power transmission to

From both ecological and economical perspectives, electric traction is the most favorable type of power supply for railways. Its reliability depends to a large degree on the contact lines, which have to operate safely under all relevant climatic conditions, needing as little maintenance as possible. Particularly extreme demands are made if overhead contact lines are expected to ensure safe power transmission to electric traction vehicles travelling at speeds over 300 km/h. The authors have used their world-wide experience to provide

This book describes the wave characteristics of contact lines taking wind into consideration and discusses new methods for detecting catenary geometry, pantograph slide fault, and catenary support system faults. It also introduces wire-irregularity detection methods for catenary estimation, and discusses modern spectrum estimation tools for catenary. It is organized in three parts: the first discusses statistical characteristics of pantograph-catenary data, such as stationarity, periodicity, correlation, high-order statistical properties and wave characteristics of contact lines, which are the basis of pantograph-catenary
